Talk:Extensions development basic
Name Change Proposal
I think the name of this article should be changed to OpenOffice.org Basic. I know that the OpenOffice.org part sounds redundant because the whole wiki is about OpenOffice.org. However, the title Basic would be too generic. Check out Wikipedia where there is already an article called StarOffice Basic. Not much there though.
Only reason I bring this up is that I had trouble finding out the basics of writing Basic code in OOo. I googled into the custom functions article and I scanned through Category:Basic:Tutorials and did not see anything. Jebix 04:48, 6 July 2006 (CEST)
Path for the Makros
this I found in the article:
To determine the actual folders that contain the OpenOffice.org libraries see: Tools > Options… > OpenOffice.org > Paths > BASIC
but I can't find it there in 2.0.4
I'm interested to know where there diffenrent makros are saved and maybe change it
More help on opening and saving documents needed
I'm trying to work out two things: how to open a document using an existing template, and how to save the resulting document. When I've worked it out, I'll try to edit this page, but some input from people who know more about it than myself would be useful.... Ptoye (talk) 11:46, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
There's also a minor typo in the examples: the "_blank" parameter is on one occasion typed as " blank". Interestingly, it still works, so it looks as if the API documentation is a bit wrong there. Ptoye (talk) 11:59, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
A correction to the previous comment: in the Wikitext the underline is there. But on my browser (Firefox) it sometimes shows as a space. Can't think why, unless there are two different codes for the underline character which are mapped differently by Firefox.Ptoye (talk) 15:23, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
Paths for OO Basic code
The text in Section 1 about the path for OO Basic macros seems to be out of date. Certainly in my OO3.4.1 there isn't an entry.
Definition of "Service"
The text says Understanding the difference between an interface and a service and what a module is, is not essential to being able to write extensions for OpenOffice.org, but it does help interpreting the documentation, and for introspection purposes. but then goes on to use the term "Service" without anywhere defining it. A paragraph defining "service" is desperately needed. I'd do it myself if I know what it was! Ptoye (talk) 15:50, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
I've now added a link to another wiki page, but for some reason couldn't get the internal wiki link to work - the "title". Can someone who knows how to do it please get it right for me? I'm not an experienced wiki editor. Ptoye (talk) 15:32, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
